Mail out, mail in.........

Today I finally got my cupcake swap partner Tammy's, packaged mailed. Only two days late.....but then my package from her arrived...WOWIE!!!!!!!!!!! Lots of cupcake goodness. Cute polka dot, rick rack and cupcake apron; a wonderful cupcake card with polka dot hankie; cupcake pincushion; chocolates and a very sweet Brighton cupcake charm. Tammy how did you know I have a Brighton charm bracelet?.....and a very sweet quilted square commemorating the swap (I'm hanging that in my sewing room!); some wonderful Lakehouse cupcake charm squares and cupcake fabric; a very sweet tea towel - that I will definitely heed the advice it has on it, and Baby Luke......hey what's Baby Polka Dot doing there??? You know I had to sneak a picture in!! Thanks Tammy for all the wonderful thoughtful swap goodies and thanks Sharon for coordinating the swap!!

I have nothing quilty to report. I finished up Tammy's swap items and then I have had a few bindings to finish up. Today I got to go over and have some grandma time with Baby Luke, so mom could get some rest. We had a great time together. He is such a snugglebug, and even though we were helping mom out, it did me a lot of good too!!!!

I have a great new word I am going to start using...wackadoodle!!! I was watching Project Runway, and one of the designers was using wackadoodle to describe something...wackadoodle certainly will fit quite nicely in to my life. I have lots of wackadoodle things going on, and I think just saying wackadoodle can turn a bad situation in to something quite funny!!!

The plan for tomorrow...something quilty for the soul :-)!!! Or perhaps some more snuggle time with you know who! Friday is breakfast and girlie time with my girl. I miss her badly. It's been a couple weeks and we have tons to talk about! Hope that you are all having a wackadoodle good time and getting some wonderful projects done!! See you later alligators!
UPDATE!!! Bonnie at Calamity Janes is having a giveaway....a really, really, cute Fall purse! Don't forget to leave a comment over at her blog to be entered in the drawing!

Hi Cheryl, your cupcake swap with Tammy ended with some great gifts. They have been so much fun to watch.

Love the "whack-a-doodle" word too!
Gonna have to copy you and insert it into my own vocab!
So what did you think of that challenge last night?
Oh MY! The "guys" looked pretty normal when they came for their fitting but OH MY GOSH! When they were all dressed up who'd a thought?
Snuggle away with baby Luke...they grow so fast and before you know it the snuggle time is done!

Ginger Patches said...

Oh I love that precious baby Luke!
I'm so glad you liked your cupcake goodies! I had so much fun working on them, made even more enjoyable because I know you :) I am now stalking my mailman :)

Please keep showing those baby pictures. I started putting together the quilt from the pattern you sent and it is a lot easier than it looks. I will be emailing you a picture on how it looks so far. Debra from Houston
